★★ PURCHASE Filthy English Today!★★

*A modern love story inspired by Romeo and Juliet*


Two weeks before her wedding, Remi Montague’s fiancé drops her faster than a drunken sorority girl in stilettos. Armed with her best friend and a bottle of tequila, she hops a plane to London to drown her sorrows before fall semester begins at Whitman University.

She didn't plan on attending a masquerade party.

She sure didn’t plan on waking up next to the British bad boy who broke her heart three years ago—the devastatingly handsome and naked Dax Blay. Furthermore, she has no clue how they acquired matching tattoos.

Once back at Whitman together, they endeavor to pretend they never had their night of unbridled passion in London. 

But that’s damn hard to do when you live in the same house…

One night. Two damaged hearts. The passion of a lifetime.

4 Stars for Filthy English!

I’ll start off by saying that I loved Dirty English so when I heard that there was going to be a Filthy English, I was instantly on board and curious. I wasn’t disappointed. Filthy English is filled with so many emotions that the story is a rollercoaster, but Ilsa made it work. 

Dax is the typical frat playboy however he wants to find his purpose in life and stop living the frat lifestyle. Remi is one of the people that truly believes that he has more to life than the partying playboy. Remi was a strong heroine that didn’t take any bullshit. Remi and Dax’s history before they meet in England creates more twists and turns that ultimately add to the story and give the reader a great novel. You really feel for both Dax and Remi and you can’t help but want them to work out their issues and get back together. When the two are together the chemistry between them is fire and it jumps off the pages. You can feel it. These two are perfect together even though they drive each other crazy sometimes. They’re both complex characters that need each other. 

I loved that we could understand what they were going to and feel every emotion they were feeling.    Ilsa has written an amazing story filled with laughter, steam, and angst that makes you never want to put the book down until you’re finished. Filthy English is well written and Ilsa really means it when she says it is inspired by Romeo and Juliet, the little references throughout the story add to its charm. Ilsa has written an amazingly emotional and hot story that captures you from the beginning and draws you in. She makes you fall in love with the characters and their story from the very start. 

I would highly recommend this book.

Without much thought except for comfort, instinctively I pressed myself against him, fitting into his arms as easy as breathing. He leaned against the brick wall of the neighboring building and wrapped me up, sensing my need to be grounded.
I don’t know how long we stood like that—maybe a minute, maybe five—but soon our breaths were in sync; the rise and fall of his chest in perfect accord with mine.
One of his hands traced down my spine and then up. He outlined my shoulder blades with his fingertips. His hands drifted to my hips then caressed back up to my hair, massaging my scalp.
But what had started as an innocent hug changed.
Fire licked my skin everywhere he touched. Of their own accord, my hands slid down to his waist and teased the line where his jeans rested on his hips. I went further, my fingers toying with the V at his hip until I felt him harden against me.
Lips brushed the top of my hair. “Remi . . . look at me,” he said, his voice raspy.
If you look up, you’re going to kiss him . . .
I tilted my head up and his mouth fused with mine in an instant.
Insistent. Wild. Hot. Yes! This is what I needed.
I groaned, and my hands rushed to his shoulders and dug in.
He was wrong—terribly wrong—for me, but it felt so right.
I felt wonderfully alive, revved up, as if I could crush a car with my bare hands, or push Dax against the wall and fuck him senseless. I recognized the feeling for what it was—an I almost-died-and-now-I-want-to-experience-life feeling.
“Wait,” he breathed as I ran my hand under his shirt. “It’s adrenaline. You’ve been through a trauma. You don’t really want this—”
“Shhh.” I lifted his shirt and kissed his chest, my tongue flicking over his nipple. “You taste like every good thing I’ve ever wanted.”

His taut restraint snapped, and he swayed into me. “God, I can’t tell you no.”
